Living (or Feeling) Alone in Lockdown
According to a survey of UK adults which took place nine months into Covid-19 restrictions (late November) one in four (24%) adults in the UK said they had feelings of loneliness in the “previous two weeks”.
As social beings, being isolated can have a significant impact on our wellbeing and mental health. Whilst we can’t replace the importance of face-to-face interactions, we need to be creative and proactive in implementing ways to stay connected and weather this storm.
Whether you are living alone, want to support someone who is or are having bouts of loneliness whatever your living circumstances, this interactive webinar aims to equip you with coping mechanisms and strategies for making lockdown a less solitary experience. This 60 minute session will be delivered by a clinical psychologist who will share:
- The effects of isolation and loneliness on our wellbeing
- Tools to help manage feelings of loneliness and isolation
- Strategies for staying connected and engaged (That don’t involve yet another Zoom quiz!)
- Ways to support your overall welbeing during those monotonous days.
